The Utah Department of Parks and Recreation says its antelope and water conservation program will offer a variety of water-skiing and kayaking opportunities for those wanting to experience the beautiful waterfalls, rivers and creecks.
Diane Dufresne, assistant director of the department’s Parks and Forestry and Conservation Services, said the goal is to provide recreational opportunities that aren’t currently offered in other parts of the state.
We will also provide opportunities for families, individuals and groups to enjoy the parks’ trails and streams, she said.
“If you are coming from out of town or traveling out of state, you might be looking for a short kayak trip,” Dufre said.
“We will provide the opportunity to do that in the future.”
The state offers some of the best waterfalls in the United States, and the trails are lined with cascading cascades and lush vegetation that creates a natural experience.
Waterfalls in Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon are also popular for visitors to enjoy, as are waterfalls near Salt Lake City.
Dufret said they are not as well known in Utah, but are very popular in other states.
Utah is the second-most populous state in the country and has a population of more than 2 million.
The first outdoor waterpark opened in 2015 in Salt Lake Valley, which is just west of downtown Salt Lake, with the opening of the new Utah Splash at the end of March.
There are four water parks in Utah: Salt Lake County Park, the Waterpark in the Valley, Zion National, and Zion Canyon Park.
There are also a number of other water parks around the state, including Zion Canyon Lake Park in Ogden, Zion Canyon Splash Park in Bountiful, Zion River Splash Park and Zion River Park in Provo.
